This hotel was in the PERFECT location to walk to many of Yountville's best restaurants such as Ad Hoc, The French Laundry and Bouchon.

The front desk people were lovely. They took care of all of our bags and even accommodated a last minute room change. They also offered a complimentary glass of wine upon check in, and there was complimentary wine, water and snacks in the room. FYI they do charge a $52 resort fee per day, which covers part of these and other costs. The other perk as part of the $52 resort fee per day is an ability to use their hotel Lexus for up to 4 hours at a time for free. They also offer free transportation to and from any of the nearby restaurants or sites in the area. This is a huge perk when wine tasting! Another perk is that the concierge can help you to ship your wine home for a minimal cost.

There is also an adorable shopping area across from the hotel with an amazing chocolatier. There are several wine tasting rooms nearby as well.

The suite we chose was very large. It had a King bed and a Queen bed, as well as a separate sitting area, an enclosed patio and a large, sunken bathtub. The spa on site was exceptional! It was one of the best massages that I had enjoyed in quite some time.

The grounds are very peaceful and zen-like. There are many stones with little ponds and fountains throughout the property, as well as thoughtful art pieces. You do have to be careful walking around the ponds in the evening though.

Every morning we enjoyed room service. Our favorites were the green juice and the breakfast croissant sandwich. They do not offer a coffee machine in the room unless you request one. If you do request a machine they will provide a Keurig with various coffee and tea selections.

Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. I could not have asked for a better experience.

This is the most beautiful hotel. The architecture and landscaping are serene and both lovely and comfortable.

The rooms are spacious with everything in the right place. The bedrooms are spare but have everything one would need. There are electronic sun shades in every room and while cool, they also are effective as black-out shades.

The closet/dressing room/bathrooms are excellent! They are beautiful but also have the sinks in the right place, the towels near the sink, space on the vanity for your stuff and electrical outlets conveniently placed. Details, to be sure, but how nice is it that they’re there?

I would DEFINITELY go back there.

Stay at Bardessono for my 35th birthday! The staff service was immaculate! Matt (hotel concierge) was responsive, offered great suggestions and guided us through the hotel upon arrival. Cameron (FOM) defined luxury service. Juan (F&B) provided authentic hospitality, was one of the friendliest and courteous servers I've come across. This hotel pays attention to all the details. One morning an attendant was walking the grounds wiping off ash from all the ground light posts. Scott (valet) provided excellent service as we departed. This team is excellent and it starts with their GM, Alain. Thank you Bardessono team, we will be back!

My husband and I booked Bardessono hotel for a week's stay end of May/early June 2020. We chose this hotel after doing our due diligence and researching all upscale hotels in the area. The trip was to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary and would be a huge extravagance for us. When booking, we noted that Bardessono offered a full refund if our cancellation was received with 14 days of our arrival date. Better to be safe than sorry!

Due to travel restrictions imposed because of Covid-19, we had to cancel our trip. We were extremely disappointed, to say the least. I notified Bardessono on April 7th to advise of our cancellation and to this date, still have not received a credit on our card. This amounts close to $11,000.00 Canadian!

Take it from me, you may want to proceed with extreme caution when booking your stay with Bardessono. DO NOT pay 100% of your stay up front! It's times like these that businesses show how they truly treat their clients.

This hotel is incredible. I travel very frequently, all over the word and try to stay in top hotels. Bardessono fits the bill.
Right from our arrival to the hotel we felt very well taken care of. Nils, one of the front desk team took us to our room and showed us around the resort. He had plenty of suggestions for things to do and even drove us to a restaurant in the hotel car when the normal shuttle was not immediately available.
In the weeks before we arrived, we spent plenty of time with Matt the concierge who helped us plan winery visits and restaurant reservations. He did a great job listening to our requests and booking exactly what I had asked for. The hotel sent me an a detailed schedule of our events.
All of the staff, including the valet people, other front desk staff were so friendly and made us feel welcome.
The room was beautiful (we had room 207), clean and very well appointed with modern amenities. Water, soft drinks and snacks were included in our stay and replaced daily. The bed very comfortable. We had a wonderful private patio.
The continental breakfast that was part of our room package was okay. Basic fruit, yogurt and pastries. If you need more you have to order from the restaurant menu called Lucy's at a cost.
The pool area was very nice, comfortable lounge chairs and little cabana type chairs were plentiful.
The hotel provides complementary shuttle to all Yountville restaurants.
The hotel was expensive but I thought well worth the price. If it is within your budget, I do not think you could choose a better place to stay in Yountville.

I had wanted to stay at this property for quite some time and maybe my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed by my experience.

Subpar service: For a property of this caliber, the service at multiple points fell far short. At check-in, at the restaurant, in-room dining the service was harried and delayed.

Rooms: They were just okay. They were nice, but there are much better options in the area. The bedding hurt my back.

Pool: Again, just okay. Very small.

Bottom line, for the level of prestige and price, I would stay somewhere else. Without the labels, this feels like a Hyatt level hotel. For a luxury stay, try the Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma or Vintage House across the street.

Stayed here for 5 nights for our tenth anniversary. The hotel has a very Zen feel to it. The grounds are maintained beautifully, the sounds of the water are relaxing, as are the smells of the plants.

Staff is helpful. The valet staff is especially hard working. They do a good job of working amidst this pandemic.

We opted for a room with an outdoor shower. So worth it. The outdoor showers are so relaxing yet invigorating.

The single complaint I have is we did not get a bottle of wine in our room as advertised. Not a huge deal. I did mention it to two separate people however. Both seemed skeptical, but said they'd look into it. Never received it. Given how awesome service was otherwise (a tube of toothpaste arrived within minutes of me requesting it after realizing we forgot some), I'm guessing they thought I was trying to swindle them out of another bottle, so made the specific decision not to give another one. Again not a huge deal, but I did find it a bit weird.

Overall this is a splurge, but is certainly top end luxury

Booked two standard rooms for a birthday. Overall they were very friendly and accommodating such as letting us check in early and getting us a crib. They sent up some bouchon macaroons for our celebration.

Where things fell apart was the email correspondence. Specifically the concierge never got back to me after acknowledging my email asking for help researching some info and my follow up. I’ve stayed at much less expensive places where the concierge was more helpful.

I even emailed the hotel for the manager contact after the stay to share feedback but never heard back. I don’t know if they don’t care about feedback, don’t care about you unless you are on property or something else but it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Living in the area I had hoped to find a place we could regularly return to for occasions but the lack of communication makes me think twice. Unless you don’t need anything in advance of the stay, may think twice.

I booked Bardessono for my birthday after reading through reviews about the top Napa hotels. Staying there was a incredible experience. I called before arriving, and the concierge was very helpful with restaurant and winery reservations. Shortly after checking in- champagne was sent to my room, and that was a great way to kick off my birthday celebration. My husband and I enjoyed the spacious room and private outdoor patio with a tub and outdoor shower. I could have stayed in the outdoor tub forever. When we asked for the “shuttle” to visit a nearby venue- we were pleasantly surprised by the Lexus SUV- since we expected the typical golf cart. The property is immaculate, the rooms are beautiful and service from the staff was exceptional.

Hard to understand after our countless visits to Yountville, why we never stayed at Bardessono. Our trip this week could not have been more delightful. Wonderful rooms, fabulous property and amenities, sensational restaurant in Lucy, and one of the most extraordinary acts of kindness we have ever seen in customer service.

We were traveling with a young newborn and having a longer than expected 5 hour dinner at The French Laundry. (Longer than expected because our dinner was beyond wonderful as Thomas Keller decided to join us) Unfortunately we ran out of breast milk and called the hotel with our crisis. Needless to say, without asking, Joe from the hotel went into our room, grabbed a bottle from our room refrigerator, and brought it to us at the restaurant. (Which Anton the maître D served to us on a sterling silver platter)

In all seriousness, if you want to see impeccable service at a legitimate 5 star hotel, you cannot pass up Bardessono.
